Superdrol – Steroid or Prohormone? Doctor's Analysis of Side Effects & Properties

A physician’s analysis of Superdrol aka methasterone or methyldrostanolone and its side effects and properties. On paper, superdrol looks like it has a weak androgenic profile, but in practice it can be very androgenic. I’ve also seen severe anabolic steroid induced hypogonadism from superdrol, and in some cases depression. As an oral steroid, it also comes with liver side effects you should be aware of. If you are considering taking superdrol, have taken it, or are a doctor who may have patients who have taken it, please watch this video!

I do NOT in any way support the use of any performance enhancing drugs – PEDs, anabolic steroid or other medicine for muscle building or body transformation. The “off-label” use of PEDs, as such agents is considered elicit and may lead to adverse health outcomes. Please consult an expert health professional regarding any medical agent and do NOT use any medicine without the explicit advice and supervision of an appropriate medical expert.
